13 weeks

This week, finally, is the week we have been waiting for! On Thursday, we get to go and hear the heartbeats of our twins, and check up on them. I am so anxious for this appointment! I just want everything to be fine, and heartbeats to be heard. I don't know why I am so nervous about it, I don't remember having these feelings with Natalee. My mom, papa, brother, and Jeremy will be going to this appointment. I am so excited!
Mommy's view, 12 weeks
We bought the double stroller and car seats yesterday! YAY! I officially feel like we are having twins now! We got an amazing deal, that we just couldn't pass up! The cheapest system I had found to date was $455, talk about sticker shock! That's expensive!! We went to Burlington yesterday, just to see what they had in stock. Now, just in case you, or someone you know is having twins, at Burlington, you get a 20% discount off of the second item. Only on major purchases (furniture, strollers, high chairs, bedding, mattresses, etc). This is the best twin deal we have found so far. Babies R Us gives you 10% off the second item as well. You have to buy them at the same time, and they have to be the same item. Anyway, back to our deal. I had seen a system online, and have two sets of twin moms who recommended this brand and style. The stroller is the Graco Duoglider. I had found it online for $200. At Burlington, the price was an amazing $140! We asked if they had any more in the back, and the lady went to go and check. She comes back with a disappointing, "no." We asked if they would be getting any more in, to which the answer was also a "no." She then said we could have the display for 25% off. We looked it over, and it was in great shape, not a scratch, rip or tear to be seen. We happily said yes! The total for the stroller was $105! That is a $95 savings from what I had found online! Next, the car seats. Online, they were $100 each. At Burlington, the sticker price was $90 each, but since we get the twin discount, the second seat got a 20% off discount. So we paid $90 for one, and $72 for the other. After taxes and everything, our total was an amazing $289! A total of $166 saved from what I had found online. Thank you God for watching out for us! He is so awesome, and knows we need all the budget help we can get!

I am thinking we will be able to find out the sex of the babies in middle to late April. Friends are already starting to talk about baby shower stuff. I love baby showers...so much fun! I have the greatest friends too. My best friend, Mary, along with ourselves, have been buying diapers every time we go to the grocery store. My other bestie, Kara, works out at a children's home. They are always getting diaper donations from all the bigger stores, on boxes that have been damaged...but they don't have any babies at the childrens home! So, anytime she receives damaged diapers, she is sending them our way! We have quite the stock pile going. I am so blessed to have Mary and Kara in my life. We are using our guest shower for diaper storage...get it...a "baby shower!" I really am blessed, and this is only week 13.
I had coffee this week with a mom (who goes to our church) that has 4 year old twins. It was so nice, and really helped with a lot of my "fears." We met up at Starbucks and stayed for quite a while. She is a great mom, and has the cutest twins. It was so nice to know that I am not the only twin mom out there, and that I am not the only one having questions, doubts, fears, excitement, etc with this pregnancy. What a relief to know that other people have been in my shoes, and have experience to share. Kristen, you are great!
I am starting to feel better finally, although dinner and evenings are still the hardest part of the day for me. I need to drink more water. I am not great at this. So far, I have actually lost a little weight, not uncommon for first trimester mommies...and I got the flu.
The countdown is ticking until I hear these precious babies heartbeats. Thursday will not come quick enough I am sure.


  1. Is that pink shirt the same pink shirt you wore in your family pics with Carol? LOL!! Love that you are getting belly pics. Sooo cute!!! BABY SHOWER!!! We need to talk more and you need to let me know of friends that I may not know that might want to help with the shower :) So excited about your babies!!! Love you friend!!

  2. No, it's not the same shirt! If I would have shown the full body picture, you would have seen the difference. :) I love the belly pictures too...as long as the belly is covered! LOL I will talk to you about extra friends...don't let me forget! :) Love you too!!
